Two more weeks to go...or so I thought until my midwife said to plan on going to 42 weeks because most first time moms deliver late. I can't stand the thought of waiting almost another month until he gets here!
- He is potentially 7 pounds and 20 inches long, he's continuing to grow more plump, and his brain and nervous system are having some final touches. He's also starting to shed his vernix and lanugo.
Best Parts of the Week:
- Thomas's office threw him a surprise baby shower, which was so sweet! He didn't take any pictures there, but he brought home some of the decorations to show me. :) His co-workers were so generous, and I continue to be amazed by how God has provided everything we could possibly need and more to take care of this baby.
- I worked on some sewing projects this week for the little man! He has so many sweet handmade things, but nothing from his mama so I figured it would be fun to whip out my sewing machine to practice and to make him something out of love! I made him some burping cloths out of cloth diapers...
...and I also made some receiving blankets thanks to the flannel fabric at Joann's being 60% off! Thomas even contributed by helping me get the lines straight and cutting the fabric! :)
- However, I am most excited by my mom's project this week! She sent me a picture of the Santa hat and diaper cover she crocheted for him, and I am IN LOVE. Can't wait to put that sweet little newborn in these to take a few Christmas photos of him! :)
Symptoms: Everything is just uncomfortable right now and I continue to have back pain and sciatica. Also, it takes every bit of effort to roll over in bed and to get off the couch!
Cravings: Frozen lemonade!
We are so ready to meet this boy it's not even funny! We can't stop thinking about him, talking about him, and wondering how life will change once he is here!
